+# This file (or one of your own creation, rather) should be located 
+# in your home directory with the name .poprc.  Permissions on this
+# file may be no greater than -rw-------, or popclient will refuse to
+# use it.
+#
+# I'd like to point out here that I do not, repeat DO NOT, endorse
+# the use of plaintext passwords in the .poprc file.  I include the
+# password option because SO MANY people asked me about having such
+# an option.  I don't use it myself.  And I recommend that you don't
+# use it.  
+#
+# I'd also like to point out that the syntax of this file is still
+# under development (during the 3.0 beta series of releases).  If you
+# would like to suggest revisions, please do.
+#
